We may collect the following types of information:
Relational information. All of the personal information you provide may also be linked to "relational data" - such as your membership in certain groups you may join on the Site. Unless otherwise indicated, all of this relational data is public and viewable to anyone using the Site.
Log information. When you access Kindista via a browser, application or other client our servers automatically record certain information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, your interaction with the Site, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request.
User communications. When you send email or other communications to Kindista, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services. When you send communications to other Users, our system may retain those communications indefinitely so that the parties with whom communicate will have a record of your communication. We may use your email address to communicate with you about our services. You may change your communications preferences on your profile settings page.
Location data. Kindista offers location-enabled search results and the ability to find nearby users. When using the Site, Kindista may receive information about your actual location (such as GPS signals sent by a mobile device) or information that can be used to approximate a location.
In addition to the above, we may use the information we collect to:
Kindista only shares personal information with other entities or individuals outside of Kindista in the following limited circumstances:
When we have your explicit pre-approval to do so.
When we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to:
We do not currently have any agreements with third-parties that would necessitate sharing your personal information. If we offer services in the future that would necessitate sharing your sensitive personal information with third-parties, we will require opt-in consent for sharing such information.
Personal information, such as your display name, communications preferences, profile picture, primary email address, city, and state or province can be edited on your settings page. User Content - including Offers, Requests, and statements of Gratitude - can be edited or deleted on pages on which that Content is displayed.
Because Kindista functions as a community identity and reputation system, we have special policies regarding certain personally identifiable information. If you use the Site, your identity will be linked to the expressions of Graditude you give to, or receive from, other users. Other users will use the Site to develop a reputation of community generosity and trust through the Gratitude you share about them. That reputation is only valuable for other users if the expressions of you receive are permanently linked with your identity.
Your display name, your primary email address, and your profile picture are part of your searchable identity which is linked to messages you have sent to, and gratitude you have posted about, other users. Therefore, you will not be able to delete your display name, your primary email address, or your profile picture from our servers even if you deactivate your account.
